Abstract [en]

About migration, and how migration affects architecture.

People have always moved around the world. Migration is a permanent reality and the history of humanity. Forecasts indicate that migration might involve one billion people in the next decades. How movements of communities impact the configuration of buildings, towns and cities? How the meeting of disparate influences can give birth to unexpected architectural innovation?

Entropy would become the main concept of the project, seen as the measure of disorder in a changing system. Entropy to explore the ideas of decay and renewal, chaos and order, try to find the equilibrium between these opposites.

Many places in Europe are totally deserted because people moved away. It would be about absorbing new people into existing infrastructure. Migrants could help to re‐inhabit these places. Sweden becomes the perfect scenario with high depopulation taxes in the country side.

If you give a family a land, would it be a segregate act or an opportunity to grow a life? Is there any segregation if everyone has the same opportunity to success their life? Segregation is not a spatial issue.

The end result is a dynamic, positive creation to generate new culture in Sweden.
